Terrakion location, weakness and moveset in Pokémon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra explained

Terrakion is located in the Lakeside Cave in the Crown Tundra; you can easily find it in the main area of the cave.

You can easily find Terrakion by entering either of the entrances of Lakeside Cave, heading to the main area of the cave and then up to the north-west corner. It might take for Terrakion to appear, but, trust us, it's there!

How to catch Terrakion in Pokémon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra explained

Before heading to the Lakeside Cave to battle Terrakion in the Crown Tundra, ensure you have enough PokéBalls, Ultra Balls are a good idea, and healing items. It's also a good idea to save your game before battling Terrakion, so that, if something goes wrong, you can load a previous save.

Terrakion is level 80 and rock and fighting-type Pokémon. Thanks to this, it's weak against fairy, fighting, grass, ground, psychic and water-type Pokémon.

For your team, we recommend a mixture of Pokémon that have an advantage over Terrakion, and are around level 70, and Pokémon with higher levels. You can use these Pokémon as a buffer for when you start throwing PokéBalls. Though you can always use a Master Ball if you have one.

Paralysing Terrakion or making it fall asleep will also make it easier to catch.
